KBC Risk Solutions offers digital safety technology and expertise

KBC Risk Solutions from KBC Health & Safety consists of digital safety technology and hands-on SHEQ experts to offer companies value-adding risk solutions. “Our in-depth understanding of the relevant legislation means we can best advise businesses on how to safeguard their employees so that they can return home safely at night,” comments KBC Risk Solutions General Manager Louise Woodburn.

This is especially critical as Section 8 of the Occupational Health & Safety Act, 1993 states that “employers are obliged to provide and maintain a workplace that is safe and without risk to their employees.” Therefore, it is incumbent on all businesses to manage their risk in order to mitigate the possibility of any penalties and even imprisonment.

“Our main goal is to help you mitigate your SHEQ risk,” highlights Woodburn in this regard. KBC provides innovative solutions such as its Virtual Safety Officer (VSO) and a Web-based Safety File Management System to assist companies negotiate the complex and demanding requirements of South Africa’s safety, health and compliance Acts.

Part of the KBC Risk Solutions integrated offering is that the VSO allows companies to decrease their monthly overheads. In addition, if companies do not have a safety officer, a VSO is an alternative option at a fraction of the cost. It is ideal for companies looking to outsource their Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management. Utilising Passport 360 as the safety management system, coupled with a KBC Safety Expert, KBC provides assistance in compiling and managing safety files and related legal requirements for hassle-free and cost-effective compliance.

KBC Risk Solutions encompasses the VSO, compliance system development (including compliance with standards), digital health and safety management systems, legal advisory consulting, and training. This is a complete A to Z guide for total compliance:

  1. Stage 1 of the process is an initial assessment, including a gap analysis and full safety audits. 
  2. Stage 2 sees the development of appropriate policies and procedures necessary for SHEQ management, such as file compilation, management system conversion, risk assessment and industry-specific legislative compliance.
  3. Stage 3 is implementation or roll-out, which also involves training and a safety management system. 
  4. Stage 4 is the management of the system that has been put in place, which is where the VSO can play an important role, together with sustainability management, safety files and even managing the related SHEQ committee meetings if required.

“We fully understand that companies are in various stages of their compliance journey, which is why we adopt a modular approach that allows us to tailor our KBC Risk Solutions to best suit your business’s particular needs,” explains Woodburn. “Our ultimate goal is to be able to offer our clients a one-stop Rolls-Royce package that takes care of all their compliance, management and training needs with a single solution.”
